. >> let me ask you a question. we will see where it goes. what happens if john kerry becomes secretary of state in massachusetts? scott brown? >> i think they have to consider that. scott brown lost. he is still a viable. the question is, who would the democrats put up if john kerry leaves? >> he ran in an impossible state. i think elizabeth warren is going to be one of the real stars of the new democratic congress, and i can see her in national politics, at the presidential level, really soon. the other really interesting result, i thought, was that initiative in massachusetts -- it is not exactly a party issue. to have legal assisted suicide legalized in the most liberal state in the country, it failed. i think that is because doctors opposed it. >> nina. >> i want to go back to the question of the hispanic vote. i think it would go a long way if republicans did sign-ons to an immigration reform up law. it would not go all the way. the pugh center has shown that hispanics by and large are very hard workers that believe government has helped them succeed. they do not oppose government

, when john kerry ran against george w. bush, the proportion of the electorate that was white, according to the exit polls, was 79%. 79 and everyone hundred voters were non-hispanic white. four years later, and in 2008, that number had declined to 74%. this year, that number declined to 72%. in the meantime, the african- american share of the vote over that time increased from 11 to 13. the hispanic share from six to 10. and the asian american share from one to three. we are experiencing serious demographic change. if you look at these different populations, the white population, the non-spec white population in the united states is a seat -- it aging. the median age is 42. that means half the white people in the united states are older than 42. the median age for the black population is 33. the median age for the hispanic population is 25. half the hispanic population in the united states right now is the younger than 25 years old. what does that mean? it would not mean anything if our politics and parties were not largely based upon race and class and ethnicity. right now, they are. th

turnout rates or will there be slippage there if you have a john kerry type of candidate that didn't perform well. >> you have all your kind of used and worried about the imprecations of the republican party of an election, almost exactly like what we ended up seeing where the nominee was able to generate a landslide margin among whites but previously had produced an electoral landslide, ronald reagan in 80 and bush in 88 and eisenhower and comparable margins among whites. what are the implications for the party of romney losing while reaching that level? >> ron, the demographics that we have all discussed have been obvious for a long time. the proportion of whites in the national electorate over the last four presidential campaigns has gone 81, 77, 74, 72. this is not a secret. sometimes the obvious does not become apparent until we have an election like this but now the obvious is readily apparent to anyone particularly any republicans who don't have their heads on. mitt romney did extremely well among whites as you said. he won whites by a landslide yet he still lost the electio

at dinner. the problem that he is going to have, though, frankly, if john kerry were to good over to state department, as appears likely, a lot of folks, particularly within the senate would like to see him run for the senate. they would like to bring him in. it helps with showing sort of the diversity gap between themselves and the gop, which i think harry reid is very eager to demonstrate. and he is really the only person right now in the state that could beat scott brown in a special election. none of the house members really have the name id or the sort of the juice to do it. so he is really the one. >> who else do you think, boyce? who else do you think goes? who comes? >> i think the most interesting one is state, what is going to happen. hillary clinton is obviously out. is it going to be kerry? if it is kerry, you have to look at the state of massachusetts. duval patrick would appoint himself. and there would be an election. to me that's just as important. i thought janet napolitano is someone who is at the top of the list. but she is someone who is considered to be pretty partisan

brown, depending on when we get an announcement or if there is an announcement that john kerry going to be named secretary of state, in which case there will be a special election down the road for that senate seat, and you will see scott brown become the great conciliator as he prepares for the election. for others, they will continue to take their clues from what the leaders say or what the members do. there the question is whether mcconnell basically becomes at least a more passive actor and lets lamar alexander and bob corker and tom coburn take the lead and do something that he will oppose in the end, because he is mindful of 2014, as tom said. or whether you do not get that kind of impact and mcconnell works overtime to yank his members back into a tougher negotiating position. if that is the case, we go right over the cliff. >> i think mitch mcconnell will not be able to sustain unified republican support behind filibusters. >> over the long, it may work in the lame-duck session, but it is no longer possible. but norm's scenario of the quiet person in the back speaking to kent
